2/12 cathedral roof replacement
I have a shingled 2/12 roof that needs to be replaced it is a cathedral ceiling. It has no dormers or right angles to it, the size is about 40′ by 20′. I am in Vermont so i have serious ice dams which i would like to minimize but heres the catch i am not looking for the 15k to 30k option. I am looking for the most reasonable balanced option under 10k. I have received a few quotes.
1. Strip roof, ice and water shield, architectual shingle ~5500k
– justification here is that the current shingled roof has about the lowest quality shingle on it now and has lasted maybe 10-15 years.
2. Strip roof, ice and water shield, standing seam with a 1″ high [email protected] ~6500k
3. Build new roof 5/12 common rafter, ice and water shield, shingle ~10k
– i think the bonus here would be that i would have the opportunity to create a cold roof and reduce the ice damming, the draw back is that quote assumes that i finish off some of the trim, painting and any insulation work.
4. Dense pack cellulose close off venting and rubber roof ~15k
– this one freaks me out for obvious reasons, I suppose it could be done properly but…
I am leaning towards #2 however it does nothing to solve the ice damming as far as i know, could you put it on purlins to assit in reducing the ice damming? Also if ice damming occurs can it get into the seam lock of the 1″ high seam?
As much as i would like to eliminate the ice damming i dont think i can afford it, i havent had any leaking in the house (Although i do see evidence of past leaks before my time here) in the past 5 years.
Any suggestions,ideas would be appreciated, thanks for your time Mark
